Instruction Request Form

(March 23, 2020)
Due to campus closure and the remote working environment--and in lieu of our usual face-to-face instruction--we are happy to provide  course-focused support and content that educates students about using our online research tools and collections.
Please use the form below to request educational support.
For all other queries, contact Carli Spina by email @fitnyc.edu or by calling 212-217-4396   
To request a library instruction session for your class, please fill out the online form below.
  You will hear from the librarian assigned to your class at least a week before the scheduled date. However, if there is a conflict on the requested date and time, you will be contacted sooner to negotiate a new date or time.  

  • Due to high demand, orientation requests for all classes--daytime weekday classes or evening and weekend classes--must be made TWO weeks in advance.Forms submitted after 5:00 pm will be counted as submitted on the following work day.
  • Spring 2020:
    Library instruction sessions will not be conducted during the first meeting of any class.
    Please submit your request for any date other than the first date that your class will meet. We recommend that all library instruction sessions be tied to your course learning objectives, goals, and/or assignments. Please be sure to specify any relevant information in the form below.
  • Summer and Fall 2020: We are not accepting instruction requests at this time
  • We partner with you, so a classroom faculty member must be present for library instruction sessions.

If you have questions about Library Instruction, or if you submit the form below and don't receive an email confirming receipt immediately afterwards, please contact us through Ask the Library or call the Research Services Desk at 212 217.4400 (replies to voicemail messages left at this number will be delayed during our remote operation; please use Ask the Library for quicker response)
